What makes us want to share? We read something, feel something, identify with someone like us. We know how it feels to love and win, love and lose ~ confront this thing called life. Taste the wine, release your thoughts…and share my diary with me
Sometimes, just sometimes,retrospect can be as relevant as introspect; in one’s scheme of things, that is. I always keep a candle lit for those special “sometimes”. Years & years of living have taught me to realize my self-history, to own it, wear it AND rejoice in it.
Every day, every experience throughout the day as the days go by, seem to allow me to build while savouring the sum of the moments the came before.
I can’t describe the piece of mind the above has given me. It’s not about running away to join a monastery; it’s not about being “pious”. I truly believe it’s being in touch with yourself, so you can thrive in the personal environment you strive to maintain.
Above all, I have learned to THINK; not just do… just…
“There’s a way of playing safe, there’s a way of using tricks and there’s the way I like to play which is dangerously where you’re going to take a chance on making mistakes in order to create something you haven’t created before.” — Dave Brubeck
When I was 16 years old, my band director took our band class to Massey Hall to see The Dave Brubeck Quartet. What I observed on that day, is with me to this day.
His attitude, the band’s musicianship AND rhythm section interaction became and, still is, ingrained in my musical psyche. We have never met but, he was, unbeknownst to him, my main musical mentor.
Through the years I have been delighted and inspired by his many collaborations and experiments. His humility, nonpartisan views and sincerity will be treasured forever in my philosophical, social and musical meanderings.
